Shipwreck Point Beach

Shipwreck Point Beach, between Sekiu and Neah Bay,  is a State Natural Resource Conservation Area, which includes outstanding examples of native ecosystems and scenic landscapes. This 472-acre site includes one of the last open stretches of beach on the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Port Angeles and Neah Bay that is easily accessible.  The tideland beaches and associated plant communities quickly transition to foothills covered with second growth Douglas fir, western red cedar, Sitka spruce and western hemlock.  Approximately 50 acres of old growth Sitka spruce and western hemlock remain.  The parcel is bisected by Highway 112, and offers beautiful views and panoramas of saltwater beaches, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Vancouver Island.  

Seasonal whales, migrating shorebirds and eagles are plentiful, along with interesting shells, rock formations and nutrient rich tide pools.  This is a very easily accessed beach with several road pull outs and interpretative signage. Don't miss this one!
